Atlas Oil Earns Best Place to Work Honors
TAYLOR, Mich. -- For the second year in a row, Atlas Oil Co. has landed on the "Metropolitan Detroit's 101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For'" list.
The 101 Best and Brightest awards were established by the Michigan Business and Professional Association (MPBA) to honor companies that practice innovative strategies and represent best practices in human resources. Companies on the list are leaders in creating organizational value and business results through their best practices and policies in human resource management.
"Atlas is very excited and honored to be chosen once again as one of the 101 Best and Brightest Companies in Metropolitan Detroit," stated Sam Simon, CEO and owner. "At Atlas, we have built our whole culture around recruiting and retaining the best team members and then creating a supportive environment that helps them continually grow and develop. This is how we attract new talent and continue to grow our business."
The award process consists of a nomination, anonymous employee surveys by an independent research firm and an in-depth survey of the company's human resources department.
"This year's recipients were awarded for exceeding traditional human resource practices to recruit, develop, motivate and retain their employees," said Kari Lawry, vice president of human resources for Atlas Oil. "I think what made Atlas stand out once again is the quality of our leadership. At Atlas, we really focus on recognizing and developing leadership at all levels and nurturing those skills from the ground up, so that we have a solid base to build on for the future."
Formed in 1985, Atlas Oil has more than 400 employees doing business in 23 states. The company's commercial transportation business supplies Fortune 500 companies with fuel solutions. Atlas also has a mobile fueling tank wagon business and supplies nearly 400 retail gas stations representing six gasoline brands.
Atlas will accept its award at the MPBA Symposium and luncheon on Sept. 29 at the Marriott Dearborn Inn.
